LATEST NEWS ....
Another lot of mixed results last week against South Croydon. The U'19's started well but a lapse in the 2nd quarter meant South Croydon took a narrow lead into half time. We re-grouped after the break to eventually run out winners by 5 x goals.
BEST - MARSHALL, A. BEDDOES, SOLIGIO & BRERETON.
The Reserves had control of their game from the first bounce to eventually end up winning by 10 x goals. A very solid team performance.
BEST - EWART, FIELDING, MCARDLE & CROUCH (7 X GOALS).
The Seniors were a bit slow out the blocks, but fought back well in the second quarter to only be 1 x point down at half time. We let the opposition kick away in the third which meant we were looking at a deficit of 14 x points at the last break. In an arm wrestle of a last quarter, even though we kicked 5.0, we could not sustain our composure and fell short by 5 x points.
BEST - HAINING, JOHNSON, WATERS AND D. RICKARD. So let's get behind all 3 teams on Saturday and give them our full support.
We are looking for players for our U 17's Team for 2017, if you are interested or know of some young players that would like to play, we would love to hear from you. For more information, contact Adam Wilkinson 0411 019 213 firstname.lastname@example.org

AN INITIATIVE OF THE MONTROSE & BLACKBURN FOOTBALL CLUBS
Every game that Montrose & Blackburn Football Clubs compete in now has more at stake than the 4 Premiership points - they are matches that act as a timely remineder for Members of both Clubs and their communities about looking after each other whether at the footy or when we socialise.
In 2014, when the Clubs hosted an AFL International Cup Match at Montrose (between the USA Revolution and the New Zealand teams) and it was decided to dedicate future matches between our Clubs to the "STEP BACK - THINK" campaign to further raise awareness on how to avoid being involved in the often vicious and unwarranted attacks on people that have occurred in recent years at public entertainment venues. There have been numerous deaths and permanent disabilities caused to young males over recent years that have also have the added trauma to the families and friends of both the victims and the perpertrators.
The matches between Montrose and Blackburn are now fought out for the "Step Back - Think Cup" that has been won by Montrose on the first 2 occasions and is currently held by Blackburn after their win in late 2015. No doubt we are looking forward to the rematch this year and we will be putting in our best effort to win the "CUP" back for Montrose Football Club.
Keep your eye open for the 2016 draw as these are great matches to watch as both Clubs vie for the "Cup".
